Penélope won’t be the only Cruz sister with a child soon…
Mónica Cruz recently announced that she got pregnant through artificial insemination by an anonymous sperm donor on her blog for Spanish newspaper El Pais.
The 35-year-old model/dancer/actress – who partnered with her sister Penélope Cruz to create their own lingerie collection for Agent Provocateur – began blogging for El Pais in late December and in January, blogged from a gynecologist appointment before revealing the news
“So I’ve decided to talk about it: I have resorted to artificial insemination in order to get pregnant,” wrote Cruz. “I also wanted to talk about it because it is an opportunity to show my gratitude to all those anonymous donors that help a lot of women, like me, fulfill their lifetime dream. If with this I can help others that are in doubt, here I am for whatever you may need.”
Cruz, who was previously romantically linked to Spanish actor Alex Gonzalez, talked about her biological clock.
“A 40-year-old woman is very young and she feels very young but the maternity thing goes another way, it is measured with another clock that unfortunately we do not control,” wrote Cruz. “I’ve become very informed on the subject. It turns out that after 37 the possibilities of becoming pregnant decrease at an alarming rate.”
Cruz has been serving as the face of Agent Provocateur since last August. And she even starred in the luxury lingerie brand’s Fifty Shades of Grey-inspired video.
